Early College Program

Do you want to earn college credits during high school?

This Dual Enrollment Program allows students enrolled in REACH to attend college during their high school years. We oversee course selection and grant credit from the student’s college transcript to complete high school coursework and diploma.

REACH Early College Program is designed for 10th - 12th grade high school diploma program. All students enrolled are earning dual credit from a community college that applies toward the completion of the high school diploma and toward the college transcript.

REACH pays college tuition and fees for up to 12 credits per term. Students may choose to take more than 12 credits; however, anything over 12 credits is your (or your family’s) responsibility. Students will receive a $200 textbook stipend per term.

In order to enroll, students should be on track to graduate with their class or be able to demonstrate an ability to graduate in a timely manner. This means that students will need to come in with the minimum number of high school credits for their grade level or develop an alternative plan with the REACH counselor.

Courses at the college must count toward the completion of the high school diploma requirements. Students must be able to complete high school diploma requirements and graduate by the end of their senior year.
